Matildas name Dutch coach de Reus

Former Dutch international Hesterine de Reus has been named coach of the Australian women's football team following the departure of Tom Sermanni to the US.

De Reus, 51, will leave her current role as coach of PSV Eindhoven's women's team in the Netherlands to link with the Matildas in the new year.

FFA chief executive David Gallop said de Reus, who played 43 times for the Netherlands between 1983-1993, was the stand-out candidate from the international search for a successor to Sermanni, who has taken the job as coach of the US women's team.

"We put in place a very thorough search process and we had extremely high calibre coaches apply from Australia and overseas," Gallop said.

"Hesterine has 18 years of coaching experience, all the relevant technical qualifications and an impressive track record working with national Women's youth teams and elite Women's professional clubs. She has the right mix of experience and skills for this important position.

"We look forward to working with Hesterine for the next stage of the Matildas' campaign to defend the AFC Women's Asian Cup and qualify for the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup."
